HE LOVED THEM TILL THE END
(Scripture Reflection John 13:1)
 
“He loved them till the end” At a retreat the preacher gave his moving testimony. He had been preaching against alochol abuse. In retaliation he was kidnapped,stripped,incarcerated and terribly tortured. At the end of his month-long ordeal, he was so traumatized that his superior even considered putting him on phychiatric treatment. But he pleaded to be allowed to sit before the Blessed sacrament the whole day.After a month he was able to forgive. And he was completely healed-physically and spiritualy.

Do we take the Eucharist for granted? We enterthe Church casually, sometimes indecently dressed not even bothering to genuflect. Some of us are busy with our mobiles instead of paying attention to the word of God. Do we realize that we are in the presence of God Almighty, who alone is able to heal us and set us free? St.Paul says that many of our ills may be on account of this (1 Cor 11:29-30)

The Eucharist that Jesus instituted is Gods greatest gift of love to humanity a supreme demonstration of his desire to be one with us, to make us divine. If we beleive this we will try our best not to displease Jesus, but ratherbecome like him-loving,humble and willing to serve others.
